Anybody else...

awake out there? Woke up pretty stiff and sore this morning especially in my fingers, elbows, shoulders, knees and toes. Is there anybody else out there that didn't see my questions yesterday that could give me some advice on Lupus? Anybody that's living with it that could tell me if what I'm experiencing IS Lupus, as I sit here with anxiety about my blood tests?

  • I don't have Lupus, but those symptoms sound similar to arthritis or Fibromyalgia. Neither are life-threatening, but see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.

  • Well, those aren't the other symptoms I'm experiencing.
